  • Warriors fall to Model

    The Eminence Warriors would probably just as soon forget their trip to Richmond on Saturday to take on the Richmond Model Patriots. The Warriors were without leading scorer Jalen Dixie, who is serving a two-game suspension for his ejection in the Henry County game, and DeMarcus Bailey who sprained his ankle in practice on Thursday night.

    Add to that what Coach Chris Nethery described as a lack of effort and poor shooting and you have a recipe for a blowout loss, which is what happened to the Warriors as they fell to the Patriots 60-31.

  • EHS Girls Drop Two

    The Eminence Warriors girls’ basketball team hosted the Collegiate Amazons on Thursday night and fell 57-22.

    The Warriors got off to a slow start as they struggled with the Amazons’ full court press. Collegiate scored on layups off their press mixed with 3-point shots and free throws to take a 19-1 lead after the first period.

    The game continued on the same path to start the second quarter as Collegiate scored the first seven points to make it 26-1.

  • Buy Local this Christmas

    By Lance Minnis

    This is not an article about the over commercialization of the holidays. For one, we all know it’s the case, yet few of us change our habits. No, I recognize that I and probably most of you are going to go nuts this Christmas. I love to give gifts to my family. I like to surprise them with things they wistfully mentioned six months ago, and see the looks on their faces when they open that exact thing they wanted. And for me, one of the most important and satisfying things I do is to buy as much as I can locally. Let me tell you why.  

  • Man gets 10 for meth

    Henry County Circuit Court Judge Karen Conrad sentenced a Pendleton man to 10 years in a methamphetamine case.

    Kentucky State Police originally arrested Joshua Clift, 24, of Pendleton on June 8, 2012, on meth-related charges including manufacturing methamphetamine with a ‘one-step’ meth lab on the property of a residence at Pendleton Loop. Less than three months later, Kentucky State Police would arrest Clift again with a meth lab in his car in the driveway.
